An End to Deadliest Catch?

It sure seems that way.

Discovery Channel is mired in a legal dispute with "bad boy" captains Andy and Jon Hillstrand, and they and Sig Hansen, the first among equals among the captains, are bolting the show. This dispute follows the death of Phil Harris, whose sons, Josh and Jake, were to take over their father's boat and remain on the show for the upcoming -- and seventh -- season.

Perhaps the sides can make amends and have a seventh season. If, for some reason, they cannot, well, it's been great cinematography and lessons in teamwork and (very) real people over the past six years. I found the show by surfing channels, and it was riveting.
